Can Someone Track My Online Activity?

It is possible for others to track online activity, through a variety of methods. Whether through following a browsing history, tracking keystrokes in the workplace or using cookies, just about any entity with access to the network can track online history.

While seeing ads in the margins of websites that mirror recent searches adds some convenience to the online shopping process, it also means that Internet service providers rigorously track the online paths of their users and report those paths to advertisers. In the workplace, employers use keystroke trackers to monitor the time employees spend online and the sites those employees visit.
